11047: Linking bush reserves to enhance habitat for malleefowl and other threatened species in Monjebup catchment
The Monjebup catchment, east of Borden, is a known habitat of the threatened Australian malleefowl and Carnaby's black-cockatoo, and the rare Acacia trulliformis.
Waterways and remnant vegetation of the area are currently under threat from outside disturbances such as livestock.
With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project aims to protect and encourage regeneration of native bushland and enhance the natural diversity of the catchment by installing protective fencing and linking areas remnant vegetation. Four sites will be fenced on properties that adjoin the Monjebup Road Reserve to help establish corridors between the reserve and 800 ha of natural bush.
